This little hack will speed up your Apple iPhone 5 on T-Mobile

This little hack will speed up your Apple iPhone 5 on T-Mobile
Nearly a month ago an official carrier update started arriving for the unlocked or AT&T Apple iPhone 5 devices on T-Mobile unlocking 4G LTE connectivity, but as good as that sounded, the same update also crippled speeds on the carrier’s 1900MHz network.

It was obvious something was a bit broken in the update and two crafty hackers took on the task to find out exactly what. @joe012594 and @cooldayr2 bring the solution hacking the carrier update, “increasing the amount of bandwidth allowing for better throughput of data and data connection.”

Good news is the hack does not break any of the improvements that come with this update. The full instructions with plentiful technical details are at the source below and you don’t need to have your iPhone jailbroken for this to work. This little hack works on both the official T-Mobile iPhone 5 and the AT&T or unlocked iPhone 5.
